Baptism

The sacrament of Holy Baptism is offered to all who have not yet been baptized and who wish to join the Church through participating in this parish, including their children of any age.

Baptisms are scheduled at regular Eucharistic services on the Sunday after All Saints (Nov. 1), the First Sunday after the Epiphany (Jan. 6), the Easter Vigil, Pentecost, and other dates designated by the Rector.

Baptismal instruction, including a rehearsal of the service, is required for all candidates who can speak for themselves and for parents of those who cannot. Sponsors (godparents) are also invited.  See lists below for upcoming dates of Classes for Baptismal instruction and Baptismal services.  Baptismal rehearsals are held the day of the service, and will be scheduled with the participants closer to the baptismal date.

To schedule a Baptism, contact one of the staff clergy; the Baptism Information Form should be downloaded, filled in and sent to the parish office or to the priest.
